Subject Re: I keep getting prompted for Basic Authentication
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2007 08:12:25 GMT
Just out of my mind, i remember a case here where Internet Explorer was
keeping a copy of session cookie that was in contradiction with the
;JESSSIONID part of URL. For some reason it had kept alive a session
cookie after exit and tried to reuse it. The effect was strange
behaviour of session, as it was like session was constantly switched
between session1 and session2. Solution was to completly clean cookies
on IE client and restart it.

Could you check the list of cookies in IE when this happens?
